IN THE MEDIA: Ending racism early: how racialized children experience Canada's schooling system

Carl James, Professor and Jean Augustine Chair in Education, Community and Diaspora at York University's Faculty of Education, tells CBC's guest host Alison Brunette about his research on how Black children experience the school system.

James says Black, racialized, and Indigenous students are streamed into particular programs that will not lead to university. "From the very time that students go into school, from kindergarten all the way through high school, the students might be on a particular track that feeds the educational outcome for that student," says James. "It's not only in high school that we need to look at these students, we have to look at how are we are doing things in grade one or in kindergarten for the students that will enable students to maximize their potential."
